So sad that humans will always be humans, no more. Has the Sparda blood been spoiled over the ages?
~ Mundus to Dante


Mundus (Lat: "world") is the primary antagonist of the first Devil May Cry. According to legend, Mundus was a demon prince who consumed the fruit of the sacred tree Qliphoth in ancient times, gained divine powers and killed the god of demonkind, becoming the ruler of the Underworld. Soon after, Mundus' rule was opposed by the demon god Argosax, leading to a great war that separated the Underworld in two kingdoms. Sometime after the war, Mundus began to covet the realm of humans and planned to take over the universe. As a result, his right-hand man, Sparda, rebelled against him and defeated and sealed him away.
